Fresh and feisty, our twist on an American Amber Ale is aromatic and uplifting. Five malts mingle for a rich, complex flavor. Named after the Effra river, which now flows beneath urban Brixton, this ale is perfect for deep thirsts.

wheresthepath (1876) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle from London Beer Lab. Hazy amber-brown with a large, craggy off-white head. Pleasant aroma of piney American hops with a little caramel. Caramel and pine continue on tasting with some lemon, jam, chocolate and a light roast. Spoilt a little by a rather metallic bitterness in the finish but nevertheless it’s ok overall.

nota (27) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Beautiful amber haze with slightly off-colour head. Caramel & cereal nose; light, musty hops. Bright and immediately hoppy with little malt body. Kind of a shame the taste doesn’t match the promising colour.

imdownthepub (11964) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottled, 330ml from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Reddish amber with white head. There is a caramel sweetness at the start of this, malty, a touch thin perhaps. When the hops kick in there is a pine, spruce like note, slightly resinous and finally a sweetish pineapple note. It’s fine.

Kauge (943) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, (City Beverage, £ 2,60), 33 cl. Vasekarva ja hägune, vahumüts muljetavaldav, helebee˛ikas ja püsiv. Lõhn on väga mõnus, tugevalt linnasene, heinane, küps ja vürtsikas, kergelt greibise mõrksusega. Kehalt kergemapoolne, peaaegu ütleks isegi hõre, pehme, leebe mulliga. Männivaigune, heinatolmune, väikese greibivett meenutava mõrksusega... Pole just meeldejääv kraam, kuigi päris hea siiski. Siuke tsill ja pretensioonitu jook, mida oleks hea pärast füüsilist tööd värskes õhus kaduvas päevas juua.
